My Car Story with Lou Costabile 1973 American Motors AMC Gremlin X Levi's Edition
On "My Car Story" we're in St. Charles IL at the St Charles East High
School 10th Annual Car, Truck, and Motorcycle show on 5-17-14.
We're looking at a 1973 American Motors AMC Gremlin X Levi's Edition which

According to the car's Owner Mr. Pete Legenza the car took 3 1/2 years to
1968 AMC AMBASSADOR SST - SPORTY EDITION AMBASSADOR
THE SIXTIES WERE A TIME WHEN ALL CAR MANUFACTURERS WERE THROWING OUT
VARIOUS MUSCLE AND SPORTY PRODUCTS. IN 1968 THE AMC REBEL WAS THE SPORTY
MUSCLE EDITION. THE AMBASSADOR WAS THE TOP OF THE LINE AT AMC AND GOT A
DOSE OF SPORTINESS WITH THE SST EDITION. THIS 118 INCH WHEELBASE WAS
POWERED BY A 290 V8 ENGINE WITH 200 BHP. AN AMBASSADOR 2-DOOR SOLD FOR
$3,172 AND THE 4-DOOR SEDAN SOLD FOR $ $3,151, TWENTY ONE DOLLARS LESS
THAN THE COUPE. WITH THIS PRICE YOU WOULD GET A POSH INTERIOR, FULL VINYL
ROOF, SPORTY MAG WHEELS OR WIRE WHEELS, AND AN EXTERIOR DESIGN THAT WAS
SVELT, CLEAN, AND CLUTTER FREE. QUITE A GOOD LOOKING CAR WHETHER IT WAS AN
ORDINARY AMBASSADOR OR THIS UPGRADE MODEL. IF YOU WANTED, YOU COULD ORDER
THE OPTIONAL BUZZER THAT SOUNDED WHEN YOU LEFT YOUR LIGHTS ON. AN INDUSTRY
FIRST, I BELIEVE. ALSO, AMBASSADORS WERE THE 1ST MODERATELY PRICED CAR TO
INSTALL STANDARD AIR CONDITIONING. WITH THE DEMISE OF INNOVATIVE CAR MAKER
FOR MANY DECADES, NASH, AMERICAN MOTORS INC., WAS FERVENTLY CLAWING IT'S
WAY INTO THE CAR MARKET. CASE IN POINT, HERE IS WHAT AMC OFFERED TO THE
PUBLIC IN 1968: REBEL 550, 770, AND SST, MUSCLE CAR AMX, PONY CAR
JAVELIN, AMBASSADOR, AMBASSADOR DPL, AND THE SST. ENGINE CHOICES
DESIGNATED TO CERTAIN MODELS AMOUNTED TO SEVEN. TWO 6 CYLINDERS, AND FIVE
EIGHT. TOTAL AMOUNT OF ALL AMBASSADOR MODELS FOR '68 WERE 54,681 UNITS.
THANKS VERY MUCH FOR VIEWING THIS ORIGINAL SURVIVOR AMBASSADOR SST.
